Urban Sketching While Being Confined: A Virtual Experience
Thank You Mark for organizing our first virtual Urban Sketching Event
While nothing will replace the experience of being together for a day's sketching, our first virtual sketch event was a great substitute. Being confined for a long period of time is certainly a different way of living in New York City, where so much of our lives take place outside our dwellings.
And talking about being confined for long periods of time in small spaces, here is an article writen by Scott Kelly who has just come back from a year at the space station. This op-ed piece appears in tonight's on line edition of the New York Times. He has some great tips on how to sustain yourself in these circumstances, among which are: keep a schedule of activities, pace yourself, go outside and have a hobby.
And what better hobby could we have than sketching. Let's get through this by being creative in using our time and talent.
